“Some individuals truly prefer family work, where issues of control or perfectionism can be resolved,” explains Heather Loeb, MFCT. “Some teenagers feel so judged and inadequate that they think being overly skinny will buy them love and admiration; and sometimes it does.”

“According to Center for Disease Control and Prevention (2010), obesity affects now more than 30% of the US population of adults and children. Diabetes Type II is on the epidemic rise in the same groups of people. So, First Lady Michelle Obama has initiated new campaigns every year in hopes of stimulating schools, parents and grant programs to intervene. She wishes to return the US population back to being healthy and fit,” Dr. Carol Francis explains. (See more details at cdc.gov/datastatistics.)

Michelle Obama's work recently with WalMart as reported on CBS News and ABC News, Jan 20, 2012 and during her Feb 1, 2012 guest appearance on Jay Leno on NBC clearly address the masses of parents and adults dealing with overeating (http://www.cbsnews.com: Why-the-walmart-michelle-obama-plan-for-healthy-eating-is-doomed.) However, sedentary lifestyles for adults and children and the access to easy, high calorie fatty foods work against the body's natural wish to metabolize food for real energy expenditure. So obesity is a natural consequence of this new US lifestyle.” (Some pessimistic perspectives are voiced about Michelle Obama's recent outreach delineated at cbsnews.com "Why the Walmart Michelle Obama Plan for Healthy Eating Is Doomed.")
